How to Clean a Candle Jar

Okay, the candle jar that I'm showing is probably not as nice as you have in your home but...

Here I am sharing how to clean that candle jar up and make use of it!

Here's my old candle jar, still have the candle in it.
Using a butter knife, carefully remove the candle inside the jar.
(you may want to remember that we don't want a very sharp knife to avoid cracking or scratching the glass, hence the butter knife)
I placed the candle in the ziplock and put it in the freezer so I can use it on my candle warmer later on.

Pour hot water from your faucet to the already empty candle jar. 
Let it sit for about 15-20 minutes while you watch your favorite show.

When I checked the jar after about 10 minutes, I saw that the wax is slowly surfacing above the water, like in the picture below.
When the 15-20 minutes is up, empty the jar out.  Then squeeze some fresh lemon onto the insides of the jar. (lemons have high citric acid concentration which helps clean the greasy wax from the jar)
Then finally, wash the candle jar with dish soap & sponge.  And that's it!

You now have a clean candle jar that can be used for whatever purposes you seem suitable.
I will show you how this already clean candle jar was reused in our home, so I would love for you to come back♥

**update: I reused this as a candle jar terrarium for my indoor succulents.
Although, some of you might not go the hassle of cleaning this candle jar because sure, you can easily get this kind of jar from the dollar store.

But for some that tries to reuse and repurpose like me, you may find this post helpful.
